PTI December Blog Hop - Card 2

Here is the 2nd Card I made for the December blog hop.

This card features BasicGrey pattern paper from a 6x6 deck, red & white baker's twine, and PTI products: white CS, framed out #11 stamp set & die, countdown details banners die, and stamps from With All my Heart. Inks are Fine Linen & Pure Poppy. Hopefully you can see in the image that I embossed the circular seal from the set with clear embossing powder at the bottom left of the heart. It looks so pretty in real life!

Thanks for stopping by! :)

PTI December Blog Hop - Card 1

I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas! We spent it at home with our little boy and had such a nice day. He opened presents in the morning - he got a toy cellphone, a MegaBlocks Play-n-Go table, a set of 100 blocks, a MegaBlocks dump truck, a Sesame Street Garbage Truck with Oscar the Grouch and a new sippy cup. Then we played all day and watched a few too many episodes of Call of the Wildman as there was a marathon showing on Animal Plant (it's addicting LOL) and today are planning on driving up north to see the rest of our families...however we have to drive through Indianapolis, and my momma just said they are having blizzard conditions...ugh. So we might be on hold until tomorrow.

Onto the real reason you are stopping by! I made two cards for this month's PTI blog hop. My second card has a bit more color put into it, although not a lot, but still more than just whites. You can click here for the 2nd card's post.

This card features the following Papertrey Ink products: White CS of course, vellum, tiny sentiment from With All my Heart stamp set which was stamped with Aqua Mist ink, woodgrain IP, damask snowflakes dies, framed out #11 die (heart) and the countdown banner dies. I am so glad I purchased those...I've already used them several times. They are tiny, but oh so cute! I also tied rustic button twine around the card. I wanted to round the bottom corners but my punch is MIA right now...oops...hehe. Time to clean up my scrap supplies so I can find it again.

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a Happy New Year! :)

Saturday, December 22, 2012 no.96

are you ready for christmas? i'm not, i'm just popping in quickly to show my card that i put together for pti's make it monday no. 96! the challenge was to create a patchwork diecut using scraps. like melissa, i used the new limitless layers hearts and the stamp sets: with all my heart, framed out #11, heart border die & countdown banner die. i did lots of watermark stamping with my versamark onto sweet blush cardstock. the brighter pink ink is hibiscus burst. patterned papers were pti's pure poppy polka dot and the others were random scraps from american crafts (light pink with flowers), making memories (dark red polka dots), and the red damask was a basic grey pattern. thanks for taking a peek!

Umba Box Goodies

last friday, lauren from umba box contacted me after finding my etsy shop. she said they loved my handmade goodies and wanted to include a certain item in their holiday box this month! i can't say which item(s) because they want it to be a surprise for their subscribers :) while it was short notice...i had to have 300 done in 2 days, i decided that i definitely couldn't pass up the opportunity! lots and lots and LOTS of die cutting, stamping and adhering, lemme tell ya what! but after lots of hardwork, they were finished in time, and looked so cute after being packaged up!  thanks so much, umba box, for supporting handmade!
